What is the meaning of a well-oiled bearing that always sticks at rest, but once moving turns freely?
I have just taken out two differentials. Both were turning freely when I took them out; I flushed with kerosene, then degreaser; and re-oiled with engine oil. Both seized completely when dry before re-oiling. One freed up completely when oiled, and the other remains sticky at rest.
